  • Tavarozzi: Learning how to give back | Cradles to Crayons | The Giving Factory
    ends meet As I grew up I realized that I was not the only child to face challenges like this There are children everywhere facing their own struggles every day some of them far worse than mine I want to do whatever it takes to help someone in need especially children facing struggles similar to those I know all too well This realization inspired me to give back to serve my community and to make change happen in this world Cradles to Crayons is an organization that started in Boston and distributes clothing books shoes and other essentials to children in need from birth to age 12 at no cost When I heard that Cradles to Crayons was looking for a journalism intern I immediately jumped on that opportunity Even though I didn t need the credits as part of my Lasell College degree I wanted to spend my time helping children who deserve a better life During my second month interning I accompanied the team for a coat distribution Throughout the winter months Cradles to Crayons runs the Gear Up for Winter program a season long event that collects and distributes warm winter essentials such as hats gloves coats and boots The distribution that I went to was at a local motel The families being housed there were either low income or experiencing homelessness and they had requested a winter coat through one of our Cradles to Crayons nonprofit social service partners I took photos of the children receiving coats and asked parents if they would like to speak about the impact that Cradles to Crayons has had on their family This was extremely nerve wracking for me and made me overwhelmingly emotional Seeing the young children s faces light up with excitement over something as simple as a winter coat was heartbreaking Hearing a mother say her daughter would walk to school in the cold without a coat if Cradles to Crayons wasn t there brought tears to my eyes In those moments I realized that I made the right choice applying to Cradles to Crayons It makes my hours of work in the office worth it I am a student teacher at Lasell My class is all college freshmen many not familiar with Cradles to Crayons As my internship progressed I decided to have my students volunteer at The Giving Factory the 32 500 square foot warehouse where 35 00 volunteers come annually to sort clean and package donated items I wanted them to understand the passion that I have for this organization My students came to volunteer in October and the experience was life changing for them Many of them never knew the amount of need we have right in our own communities and they wanted to make a change For two weeks we held a dollar drive and a clothing donation drive with the goal to collect 50 articles of clothing to donate The students asked each person that walked by for a dollar Once
